Recovery Resources for Medical and Mental Health

Individuals with disabilities may experience significant health limitations before a disaster; however, post disaster recovery often involves addressing additional medical and/or mental health needs, such as:

  • Replacing durable medical equipment,
  • Replacing medications, or
  • Seeking mental health support.

The Long-Term Disaster Recovery Toolkit for Individuals with Disabilities is funded through grants awarded by the American Red Cross to Dr. Laura M. Stough at Texas A&M University and Dr. Amy N. Sharp at the University of Texas at Austin and is maintained by the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University.
